The world breathlessly awaits announcement of the Yankees new hitting coach

During the golden semen avalanche of Bud Selig's epoch as MLB's Owner of All Owners Who Own, there used to be a rule against teams issuing big press releases during the World Series, especially if Kansas City happened to be in it.

Bud Selig's Final Post-Season Is Thrill-A-Minute

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig may be delivering a better "farewell tour" than Derek Jeter.
